Picture Parade Pt. 2


Hey there, folks!

Well, once again I am excited and proud to share the remaining 10 images from this photo series.

No doubt, I will be doing this again in the future. So, for those of you who missed this round, no worries, I look forward to sharing your photographs in the next one!

I had quite a few of you say that you had a hard time deciding what ‘type’ of photograph to send. Therefore, next time I may pick a ‘photo theme’ to make it a bit easier, and to also change it up a bit.

So, without further ado, allow me to present your fantabulous images.

Lights! Camera! Shutter Snap!

Bromeliad by Katherine

Once again, thank you for participating by sharing your favorite photographs. They are all unique and diverse! (Picture Parade Pt.1).


If you have some time this weekend, please drop by these blogs so you can enjoy them as much as I do!


Wishing you a picturesque weekend everyone!

  1. Expat from Hell... What a stirring blog name. Gotta go see ASAP! That cow face, or the sunset... or the seashore. How beautiful this globe of ours is.

    Huggedy hugs for le week-end!

  2. I like the picture of the Men in the Blue hats... oh wait that's biased ;-)

    BTW Babs, I would not get that close to a moo cow - not even for a kiss.

  3. Lovely photos again!

    You know what makes this extra fun for me? A lot of these photos (if not all) are from another part of the world :) Maybe for the next one I will supply something typically English!

  7. Good morning Babs~

    Aren't the all the photos fab? And their all different.

    "You know what makes this extra fun for me? A lot of these photos (if not all) are from another part of the world :) Maybe for the next one I will supply something typically English."

    Hey, I never thought of that, but you're right! That's the cool thing about sharing our photos - we get to visit all over the world without everleaving our homes!

    Yes, next time, please do share something typically English. In fact, you just gave me a great idea for my next series of photos.

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. And THANKS for also participating in this photo series!!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. These are such beautiful photographs! They're just the thing I needed to brighten up this gloomy morning. However "Moo" was a little shocking at first, since that cow looks exactly like an old boss of mine. Oh, well. Thanks for posting these excellent photos, buddy, and I hope your weekend is suitable for framing!

  10. Fantastic pictures, all of them. Do you know I actually felt the warmth in Mary's photograph and the sunset made me feel dreamy. I aim to visit all pretty soon. Well done, Ron, it was a lovely idea of yours. Have a great weekend.

  11. Something just struck me here. All pictures show nature, beauty, the good life...
    And then there's me. Determined to shatter the peace and tranquil with lots of noise, environmental damage, sweat and dollar signs,

  12. OH they are all so wonderful, I'm looking forward to doing a little blog hopping today. The dusting can WAIT!!
    YES, YES, YES, (not having an orgasm) continue doing the photo posts and themes would be even more fun!

    Have a wonderful weekend! Off I go to meet some more of your peeps. Hope they are okay with some stalking. ;)

    Yup, and perfect for a gloomy day like today in the north east.

    "However "Moo" was a little shocking at first, since that cow looks exactly like an old boss of mine."

    Bwhahahahahahahahahahahaha! OMG, Rob, that totally caught me off guard - HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!

    "I hope your weekend is suitable for framing!"

    "Something just struck me here. All pictures show nature, beauty, the good life...
    And then there's me. Determined to shatter the peace and tranquil with lots of noise, environmental damage, sweat and dollar signs."

    Bwhahahahahahahahahahaha! OMG, that TOTALLY cracked me up, the way you said it!

    But, hey, that's what I LOVE about your photo - it's uniquely different. And that's the coolness of it!

  18. Thanks for spotlighting one of mine, Ron! Like I said, I love this idea of yours (even if you borrowed it from somebody else...you still get the credit, buddy!). I like the photo of the silver miners - love how vibrantly colored those vests are against the dusty gray background.

    Are you ready for it?

    Here it comes...

    Have a faaaaaaaaabulous weekend, sir!!

  20. Howdy Mark~

    And thank YOU!

    Like all the others, I am proud to share your photograph. It's stunning.

    "Like I said, I love this idea of yours (even if you borrowed it from somebody else...you still get the credit, buddy!)."

    Yes, I did borrow the idea from someone else (The Pioneer Women). But hey, that's the wonderful thing about blogging, we sometimes get our inspiration and ideas from others.

    "I like the photo of the silver miners - love how vibrantly colored those vests are against the dusty gray background."

    I agree, Mark. I thought the same exact thing when I saw Jaffer's photo. The contrast is REALLY cool!

    Thanks a bunch for participating in this series, buddy! And thanks for stopping by!

    And are YOU ready for it?

    Here is comes....

    Have a faaaaaaaaaaabulous weekend, sir!

    Thanks for asking folks to be brave--it was worth it just to see their work here. Oh, and it got me visiting, which was a very cool thing. Might even return if folks don't mind. :-)

    "*laughing* And bless Babs for the cows nose! I LOVE it!! I feel better now that it's over. LOL How silly is that?!"

    HA! And isn't it fabulous how you and Babs are together in order? I think it's ironic that this series has a lot of animals in it!!!!

    "Oh, and it got me visiting, which was a very cool thing. Might even return if folks don't mind. :-)"

    Yaaaaaaaaaaay! I'm so glad and happy about that. It's nice to meet new bloggers and share!

  31. this is such a great idea for promoting bloggy community! It has helped me get acquainted with a couple of your blogging friends and even another by extension. I can't thank you enough Ron. Your circle of bloggy friends are all so friendly and creative. Every single person's perspective on life and humor and art and thoughtfulness seems to touch me in some way. Thank you my dear friend! xo Diane

  32. Hey Ron
    Love all the photos. I'm going to have to stop by some of these sites. Thanks for doing this. I think people really enjoy it. I especially like the one of Moo. But, I'm partial to animals.

  34. Good morning Diane~

    "It has helped me get acquainted with a couple of your blogging friends and even another by extension."

    Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! That's GREAT! So glad to hear that people visiting one another and getting acquainted. It's good to meet new bloggers and expand the community. I mean, that's what blogging is all about, right?

    I feel blessed to have a very eclectic gang of bloggers - different and unique in their own way. It's the way I am offline too. I like hanging with people that have different interests than myself because I learn new stuff.

    " Every single person's perspective on life and humor and art and thoughtfulness seems to touch me in some way."

    Me too! Isn't that FAB?

    Thanks so much for stopping by and participating in this photo series, my friend. So proud to have you here!

    And thank YOU for introducing me to The Pioneer Woman because that's where I got the inspiration to do this.

    Don't you just adore Bab's Moo photo? Brilliant!

    And I think it's just too cool that there are THREE animal photos in this group!

  43. Hi Ronnie,

    I have to Congratulate everyone for their stunning photos.
    I really enjoyed it all..

    I feel especially moved by the pics that were taken alongside beaches, like by Mary,Mark or Katherine.

    Next time, Ron, I want to participate with you guys! I think that I missed out, but will make it next time. I think that was because I don't have you on a reader; just my blog roll link on that I use

    Thanks to all and to Ron.

  53. I just realized that I went toodling around and left a few comments, but I don't think I left one here. This is Katherine #2! He really is VERY lucky to have two of us lovely ladies though, don't you think Katherine?!

    (God, I feel like I am talking to myself now! Please don't tell my family. They think I do enough of that already)

    If I really didn't comment on here or your first photo waltz, I think this was a fabulous & fun idea Ron. You had some fantastic pictures come in & are indeed blessed to know so many talented people. It is difficult to pick a favourite of the photos that were shared. Moo, Hummingbird and beach are amazing, but I would love to go to the infinity pool as well.

    Before I ramble any more, I am going to say Nighty, night! thanks for the fun. :)
